The Nazarene Way of Essenic Studies
~ Mary Magdalene ~

Great Mother-Goddess Queen

Luke-Acts and Revelation were written in Allegory in order to preserve the true story of Jesus the Nazarene and Mary Magdalene.

The Nazarenes were under attack and feared total destruction of their doctrine. Allegory was their only hope of saving their history

from destruction at the hands of their enemy, Saulus, aka "The Apostle Paul. "

Mary Magdalene, Great Mother-Goddess Queen

by Gott

 "Among the goddesses representing either the female side of Yahweh or his consorts, such as Asherah, Shekhina, Anath, and Lilith, Shabbat Hamalka has a unique personality and origin."

"The name means Queen of the Sabbath, and the entity is the personification of the Jewish day of rest, Saturday [day seven]. She still possesses a prominent position in Judaic mythology. For example, Israeli children, even in completely nonreligious surroundings, still sing songs to her every Friday afternoon (in Hebrew "Erev Shabatt" meaning the Sabbath Eve) before the Queen "descends" from Heaven to grace the world for twenty-four hours."

"Her origin is extremely ancient, and as the centuries rolled, Shabbat Hamalka acquired magical qualities, combining the character of Queen, Bride, and Goddess. In addition, she took on strong erotic/romantic and cosmic/spiritual significance. The usual Judaic connections to Akkadian myths exist in her image, because the word Shabbat resembles the name of the Akkadian feast of the full moon, Shabbatu. The romantic character of the two holidays also had much in common. For example, marital intercourse on Friday night was considered a sacred duty, exactly like the sacred sexual activity during Shabbatu." (Emphases added.)

(Quoted from:

Shabbat Hamalka by Ilil Arbel, Ph.D.)

"The Great Goddess who dwelt in the sacred black aniconic stone was given the title Shayba by the Arabic-Aramaen people."

"The earliest known Arabian temple was at Marib, capital of Sheba, and was called Mahram Bilqus, "precincts of the Queen of Sheba." In Arab lore, this queen was named Bilqus or Balkis; in Ethiopia, Makeda (also Magda), meaning "Greatness."

(See article at:

Ethiopian is a word that means burnt faces; in ancient times, people with black skin were called Ethiopians. The Ethiopians called their Great Mother Goddess, "Mahram Magda." Solomon's lover, the Queen from the land called Sheba described herself:

Song of Solomon 1:5-6: "I am black and beautiful…like the tents of Kedar, like the curtains of Solomon…Do not gaze at me…because the sun has scorched me."

Ancient Goddesses were also associated with falling stars and the morning star, Venus. The Greek word for star is aster.

Before Moses the number seven (Hebrew Shabbat) was associated with the Feminine aspect of God, aka, Goddess. So, too, was the Greek word for star, Aster. Shabbat was the Hebrew goddess; Astarte was popular throughout the Greco-Roman Empire, including Egypt, Libya, Greece, and elsewhere. 

Revelation 1:16: "…in [Jesus'] right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth issued a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength."

Revelation 1:20: "As for the mystery of the seven stars which you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden lampstands, the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches and the seven lampstands are the seven churches."

Revelation 2:1: "To the angel of the church in Ephesus write: `The words of [Jesus] who holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks among the seven golden lampstands."

Revelation 3:1: "To the angel of the church in Sardis write: `The words of [Jesus] who has the seven spirits of God and the seven stars."

Jesus held "seven stars in his right hand," is, allegorically, "Jesus held Hebrew goddess/Greek goddess in his right hand."

Philo's Rule for Allegory #3: "...the repetition of statements previously made..." suggests that "seven stars" and "right hand" hold a secret message for the initiated. The solution is frequently found in the Old Testament - usually the first place to go:  

Song of Solomon 2:1-6: [The Queen of Sheba sang these words to King Solomon]: "I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys. As a lily among brambles, so is my love among maidens. As an apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among young men. With great delight I sat in his shadow and his fruit was sweet to my taste. He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love. Sustain me with raisins, refresh me with apples; for I am sick with love. O that his left hand were under my head, and that his right hand embraced me!"

Song of Solomon 8:1-3: "O that you were like a brother to me, that nursed at my mother's breast! If I met you outside, I would kiss you, and none would despise me. I would lead you and bring you into the house of my mother and into the chamber of her that conceived me. I would give you spiced wine to drink, the juice of my pomegranates. O that his left hand were under my head, and that his right hand embraced me!"

In Arabia, the woman singing to King Solomon was called, Queen of Sheba. In the 5th century BCE, Cambyses renamed Sheba after his sister, Mero (Antiquities 2.10.2). After that time the Great Mother-Goddess Queen was called Mero Magda.

Greek for Great: Megalen       Με γ      ά λην

Greek for Magdalene         Μα γ δ  α λην ὴ
